I was here for a meeting with three other people. The Waitress asked us what we wanted before we even read the menu. We gave her the drink order, she brought back our four waters, and wanted to know what we were going to eat. We ordered. Within three minutes, we had salad and breadsticks. Five minutes after that, we... More

My nephew picked this restaurant, as it is his favorite, and we enjoyed a wonderful family dinner. While I expected to wait on a Friday night, there was no wait . . . our server was off-the-charts efficient and kind . . . and the food was consistent with the other restaurants I have gone to. We were seated next... More

The air conditioning was not working properly which did not help the wait and staff attitudes. The food was standard Olive Garden which ranged from great to mediocre for our table. The salad and breadsticks, as always, were good and well stocked.

We enjoy this Olive Garden a lot. I ordered the whole wheat linguine with mean sauce, and there was no way I could have eaten all of it! I ended up bringing home enough for two more meals! And the salads are always so delicious.

This restaurant is ALWAYS packed on the weekends. The best time to go is during the week. Forget holidays the wait times are outrageous. With that being said, the food has always been good and so has the service. Its a reliable chain restaurant.

Typical Olive Garden. The environment and music does a lot of here. Greeted immediately at the door, sat immediately. Service was good, not fantastic but maybe our server was new. He could've gotten a bigger tip if he had kept asking to refill my wine! I had the Lasagna Classico, My favorite dish and it did not disappoint. Overall Good... More

We visit this resturant quite frequently. They are very good with special requests. The only issue is that the grilled chicken in the Fettuccine Alfredo is sometimes overcooked and charred. Otherwise, the food is very good and satisfying. If you don't care for something they will re-cook or replace the item, whether it's their fault or a bad selection on... More
